SNL’s Marco Rubio Explains His Infamous Water Sip In SOTU Response (VIDEO)

Saturday Night Live spoofed Sen. Marco Rubio’s awkward and ill-timed water break duringhis rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address, with Rubio, played by Taran Killiam, there to explain what actually happened.

SNL Host Seth Meyers asked Rubio to explain what happened that night.
“You’re about to give an important policy speech. You get a little nervous in the green room, and you eat a whole bag of you eat a dry roasted peanuts and some beef jerky,” Rubio said.

“There are hot lights on you, the room isn’t ventilated. You’re wearing your lucky burlap unitard under your suit, so you do what anyone would do.”

He further continued by saying, “You suddenly lunge to the side — all the while holding awkward eye contact with the camera — and then you take a drink from the tiniest bottle of water anyone has ever seen.”

Rubio tried to redo his speech butwas again overcome with a powerful thirst that forced him to quit the task again and explained that he had just completed a “cinnamon challenge.”
